Lineas, the largest private rail freight operator in Europe, welcomes Jan Luyten as Chief Human Resources Officer. His appointment fits the company’s ambition to transform into a true European end-to-end logistics provider.
Jan Luyten joined Lineas as Chief Human Resources Officer on 1 March. In this capacity, Jan will be leading the employee and organisational agenda, working on the company’s operational model, talent and capabilities, HR functional excellence and the overall scalability of the organisation and its HR policies in line with Lineas’ future business ambitions.
Jan brings more than 20 years’ experience in HR, of which the majority in international business environments, most recently as Vice President of HR for the Packaging Inks & Resins division of Flint Group.
Jan’s appointment follows the one of Kurt Coffyn and Lars Redeligx who recently joined Lineas as COO and CCO respectively. Together with the other members of the executive committee, they will prepare Lineas for the next step of European scale-up.
Lineas has been growing steadily over the past years. Its logistic offering, including the unique Green Xpress Network, convinces more and more companies to shift the transport of their cargo from road to rail. This allows them to optimize their supply chains while reducing their impact on climate and mobility.
